to president obama's defense. >> i want to tell you how proud i am to stand shoulder to shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel physical security than any president of eight i served with. >> that came the day that the president was on the phone with netanyahu who is in the united states instead of meeting him in person. a white house statement said they are in full agreement of a shared goal to prevent iran obtaining a nuclear weapon, it stopped short of agreal to the red line that he demanded thursday. >> where should a red line be drawn? right here. before, before iran completes a second stage of nuclear enrichment. >> romney pressured the president scheduling his own call today with netanyahu. >> the national security threat is iran with nuclear capability. we spoke about the assessment of where the red line ought to be drawn. >> romney took the opening to hamer a president who has seen drop on foreign policy. the problem is bigger on the questioning of the handling of libya with 39% of the public approving, 43% disapproving and 17% unsure. >> i'm supposed to be eye candy here. >>
is hillary clinton's role and what is president obama's role? >> well, let me tell you, everybody is responsible for everything that happens in his unit or fails to happen. the state department has a great deal to answer for. there's no doubt in my military mind this was a pre-planned attack. if you look at it as a small unit operation, they had mortars that they shot, combined with small arms, automatic weapons and rocket propel ed grenades. you do not collect that sort of equipment wandering around the streets of benghazi. this is a small-unit operation that had at least a modicum of planning. it was pre-planned and there is no doubt also that the security there -- it wasn't just awful. it was absolutely nonexistent. >> do you know, jarks, have you followed this -- everybody is waiting for the fbi to go to benghazi to find the people that killed our ambassador. but the fbi will not go to benghazi. they are in tripoli at our embassy there which has good security. they will not go to benghazi because the security is so awful. even now, 12, 14 days after the attack. so you have got

about this morning. >> he tells sean hannity he thinks the obama administration tried to to have up the attack. >> they had this narrative al qaeda is no longer a big threat. they never say fundamental terrorism. the president was moving on to asia he was going to declare this a vit great victory and an act of terror convened in their narrative. this isn't stupidity. i said this a while back i got heavily attacked for it. i spent a lot of time investigating coverups and conspiracies. this is a coverup a deliberate brat attempt to cover up the truth from a administration that wanted to make history. it involved the slaughter of four americans. maybe if they had been straight forward about this they could have quelled some of these demonstrations that took place afterwards that also did tremendous amount of damage. >> fox and friends will have a lot more on this at 8:00 a.m. today. make sure you tune into that. >>> moving on to the economy a key issue in this presidential election as you know. that's what sean hannity is talking about with the dnc vice-chairman. he is pressing him on
or obama of stacking all the polls in his favor? what you would want -- remember, there's a huge enthusiasm gap still i think conservatives are motivated, liberals are a bit less motivated why would you want to tell those liberals your guy is winning don't worry about it? what's the point? >> i'm not sure. i mean the enthusiasm gap is closing and, you know, so you hear it in rush limbaugh telling people, all that matters is that we defeat barack obama and i don't think elections are won that way. on the other hand it turns out that voters like barack obama. swing state voters like barack obama. they may have questions about the economy, but it really is turning out to be a surprise election because i think that the base and more than the base, is anxious to turn out for barack obama. >> there is sort of a hidden truth beneath this conspiracy talk and that is that most polls are prediction about who will turn out. and a lot of the models predict that obama coalition that turned out last time that tilted in some ways more democratic and in some ways more young, will turn out again. that's bas

. >> plus, we'll tell you which of these two ads are actually work. and a representative from the obama campaign is here live with 40 days to go before this election. "hannity" starts right here, right now. tonight the white house is engulfed in a scandal as there's shocking new evidence proving that you the american people were lied to by the president, by the secretary of state, and other senior members of the obama administration. now, fox news can in fact confirm that within 24 hours of the assault on the banghazi consulate the obama administration in fact knew with certainty that that was indeed a terrorist attack. now two sources also tell fox that u.s. intelligence officials were even aware that the assault was coordinated by al-qaeda-affiliated operatives. all of this was verified on september 12th less than a day embassy stevens, two navy seals, and one other american were assassinated. rather than tell the truth, and acknowledge that the al-qaeda link existed, admit that the president's triumphant killing of bin laden was by no means marking the end of international terrorism,
on that. are you saying that president obama is in any way responsible for his death? >> look, an administration as a whole is responsible for what happens on its watch, unless he wants to tell us that the buck doesn't stop there. this president has, in my opinion, failed to maintain respect for the united states in that part of the world. and respect is one of the great assets you have in trying to protect your diplomats around the world. >world. >> greta: can you think of reason the administration kept pushing the youtube video theory, not straight with us from the get-go? i mean, people were suspicious. it's 9/11. it's americans getting killed. it's that part of the world. it's our property, because it's the consulate. is there any other -- is there any explanation that you can give us as to why we weren't told it was terrorism when they knew it? >> you gave some choices of incompetence, lying or cover-up. i think it's all three. i think it's incompetence. i think it is a fact that they have policies there that don't work. i think it's lying. he goes to the u.n. and says vi
that a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll has president obama ahead in north carolina. if you want to sound smart today, tell your friends that in the last five presidential elections, the democratic nominee has won the state where the democratic national convention was held. in fact, the last democratic nominee to lose the convention state was michael dukakis. he failed to carry georgia in 1988 despite holding the dnc in atlanta. >>> let he is gather around the water cooler to watch a special thursday night election season edition of "saturday night live." and in this sketch, president obama takes questions from the audience at a campaign rally in ohio while many voters down in the dumps over the job market watch the president look for something that they can all agree on. >> hi. i got laid off in 2009. i still haven't found a job. i don't want to vote for romney. but i really thought things would be better by now. >> real change takes more than one term. or even one president. i don't know if it will even happen in eight years. might take 12. frankly, i might be long dead. who here has a
wednesday's debate with president obama. and mitt has a plan. he says he's going to go outnd tell the truth. t trentl not be able to continue to mischaracterize my pathway and so i'll be able to describe mine, he will describe his and people will make a choice. >> karl rove loves the idea. he wte today in the "wall street journal," "mr. romn must call out the president and set the cord straight in a presidential tone." sods gd. ro'sen aice to heart. in fact, he says there are three issues he needs to correct the president on. here's the first one -- >> when he says i was in favor of liquidating the automobile industry, nothincould be rthefromhe t. my plan was to rebuild the auto industry and take it through bankruptcy so that could happen. >> oh, really? romney's starting with an easy one here. we know exactly what he thinks about the automobile loan. 08caus wrote about it in romney said, let detroit go bankrupt. he said, federal money could kill the automobile industry. but the cash injection did what? the absolute opposite. automakers got special financing from theaxpayers. and, of course
sure. i think, charles blow, tell me what you think, i think this continual pounding now, if all obama does is pound away on 47% and romney as this kind of ruthless business figure wrecking jobs at bain, however true that may or may not be, and we haven't even seen the detail of the company report, we can't work it out but these are now becoming a big problem for mitt romney. >> it's a huge problem precisely because it's in his own words. if this was just an attack by the obama campaign and obama was standing in front of the camera saying this is what i think about what he did at bain, it's a very different thing. but using words like harvesting. what does that make the people who lost their jobs, the chaff? what does that make them? this is the worst kind of abusive language that you can possibly imagine. >> the problem for him is it plays to, kristen, i will come back to you on this, it plays to this sense there's always been about mitt romney that he's too rich, too detached. with that comes a kind of arrogance and disconnect from the average american. these two things, his bain rec
states in this country. in iowa, president obama was so proud to win iowa in the democratic primary of 2008. he had an organization there that's never left. i can tell you that from now until election day, i'm looking forward to being in iowa this weekend. we're going to continue to go door to door and neighborhood to neighborhood to talk to votesers about this moving forward. >> give us a snapshot of the swing states and the ground operation. i mean, we just showed the map of iowa. it's rather overwhelming. the intensity. and the ground game that president obama has got versus the challenger, mitt romney. does it look this way in all of the other swing states? >> well, you know, mitt romney, let's not just dismiss the organization that he has. when you have a handful of billionaires essentially trying to buy the white house for you, you know, you can pay for a few offices and for some folks to get out there and knock on some doors. they certainly aren't doing nothing. they've got an organization there as well. but we're proud that we have a grassroots people powered campaign. one t
preparation. they also point out this is taking place in a swing state, so you can expect president obama to be out engaging in some campaign events as well. i can tell you, alex, aneat na dunn and ron clan are running the process. john kerry is a formidable challenger there. he'll stand in as mitt romney. one thing we're reporting is both sides trying to lower expectations heading into the debate on wednesday, which is key for both candidates, alex. >> for themselves and increasing them for the other guy. that's what they're doing right now. thank you so much. let's bring in the political power panel. jonathan kapart, and chris cofinus and jackie gingrich kushman, author and daughter of newt gingrich and former adviser to her father's presidential campaign. welcome to the throuee of you. five days is all mitt romney has before the debate. the politico article everybody is talking about today say this isn't the chair or ho hum convention or the leaked video or distorted polls or the message or mormonism. it's mitt. does he have enough time for a real game change? >> you know, five days be
% are going with president obama, 42% mitt romney. we asked dean reynolds to tell us more about the medicare factor. >> the first step to a stronger medicare is to repeal obamacare. (boos) because it represents the worst of both worlds! >> reporter: a week ago when republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke about medicare to the american association of retired persons in norls he got an earful. >> the law turned medicare boo into a piggy bank for obamacare! (boos) >> reporter: that frosty reaction is borne out in new polling, both by cbs news and others which found more people thought the president would do a better job handling medicare than governor romney. the "washington post" and kaiser foundation surveyed voters in virginia, ohio, and florida. in those states that found that majorities of 56%, 59%, and 65% support maintaining medicare's current system of benefits. in flagler beach, florida, walt mazie has some serious questions for romney. >> i think romney will turn the economy around but it's the other issues that we don't know about. >> reporter: like what? >> like the m
. >> reporter: i tell you, we don't talk about medicaid as much as you know. a big part of obama-care is expand medicaid, give the states the option to expand the federal poverty level people can qualify for it. it costs money for the federal government and state government. the romney plan, we've been dissecting it, turns medicaid into a block program and let the states decide and ultimately, there's less dollars going into the program. >> since seniors are a large portion of the recipients of medicaid, what happens to them? how are they affected? >> interesting, as a physician i've been looking it a. medicare for catherines and medicaid for people impoverished or have disabilities. 6 million seniors get medicaid as well called dually eligible. the area that impacts them the most is probably long term and nursing homecare. medicare covers a lot of things. one of the things it falls shorter is in that nursing homecare. if you're a senior that falls within that poverty guideline and you need nursing homecare, medicaid is often where that source of money comes from. i think those people will be a
too fast or kibling ass. -- and i'm all out of no food. what? tell me gandhi wasn't cranky from the hunger. i fasted for one day yesterday and i was ready to punch a baby. so obama let me down a little bit. but you know who never disappoints, a ahmadinejad what a guy, right, can't live with him, can't get him to admit the holocaust really happened. all right, i don't want to say the guy has been tankers with nuclear bombs but before he walked into the u.n. that marble behind him was white. dude's radioactive. let's take a listen. >> i am here to voice the devine and humanitarian message of learned men and women of my country. a message that iran's great or ther and poet saadin presented to humanity in his eternal two-line poetry. >> jon: oh, i remember that poem. it goes something like this. al hickory al dick ory dock, the zionists can eat -- >> give me some that old time i hate your religion. >> i do not believe that muslims, christians, jews, hindu, buddhists and others have any problem among themselves. or are hostile against each other. they get along together comfortably.
